We had a wonderful week in Art Enrichment learning about Impressionism. We finger painted some beautiful paintings in the style of famous Brooklyn painter Iris Scott. This week in Adventures in Literacy we talked about letters and their sounds! We focused on beginning sounds and used our mystery boxes. In Cooking Enrichment we made delicious pancakes from scratch measuring and adding the ingredients, cracking the eggs and mixing. They were delicious served with sausage and syrup. We also talked about family style eating and table manners.In Music and Movement we continued learning rhythm using our rhythm sticks and parading through the school. We listened to and made harmonicas on Friday. We had so much fun we will do it again on Tuesday! In STEM we explored the 5 senses. We smelled and tasted different items, such as basil, peppermint and cinnamon. We also tried to guess what was in the bag by using our sense of touch.
CNS has been an absolute blessing for my family. I couldn’t think of a better place for both of my children to have their first experience of school. My daughter Julia attended CNS for two years: in the three-year-old program and then for the four-year-old pre-K program. She is now in 2nd grade and looks forward to picking up her younger brother from CNS everyday and giving all of her former preschool teachers a big hug. She has such great memories of her time there. My son Joey is now in his second year at CNS in Mrs. Smith’s pre-K class. This is the first year we tried out the afternoon enrichment programs and we are thrilled with how fun and exciting his days are. Joey adores Mrs Smith and all of his classmates and he really loves the art, music, & cooking enrichment classes. Both of my children love going to school every single day because of the support, love and acceptance they received at CNS. Plus, Joey says “It’s so much FUN!!”
The staff at CNS has become our extended family and the friendships we have made with other CNS families are going to be lifelong. I am going to be so sad next year when my youngest is ready to move on to kindergarten and our time at community nursery school will be over.
